When Alejandra watches your pet

I've been living in Santa Cruz since 2010 and am familiar with dog-friendly areas around town!
Is your dog social and prefer to meet other dogs during walks?
Maybe your pup is dog-reactive or prefers a quiet stroll with few other dogs?

- We can go for walks in pre-approved spots that will help your dog be comfortable and enjoy themselves or discover new paths.
